Viktor Hovland

The Oklahoma State golf history continues to grow.

Golf is back in the Olympics for the second time since being reinstated, and OSU will once again be represented. Former Cowboys Viktor Hovland and Alex Noren have earned spots in the field. Hovland will be one of two golfers representing Norway, and Noren will be one of two to represent Sweden.

Hovland and Noren will join Rickie Fowler as Cowboys to earn Olympic spots since the sports reinstatement in 2016.

Hovland ranks No. 14 in the World Golf Rankings, and has two PGA Tour wins in his career. Hovland is eighth in scoring average and sixth in the FedEx Cup race.

Noren ranks No. 95 in the world, and is the highest ranked Swedish golfer currently.
